Shenzhen is the silicon valley of hardware. ShenzhenWare is the first and the most dynamic community for hardware innovators in China and across the world.
Our founder and CEO Shining Hsiong, is a community leader, making great commitment to China developer community for more than 18 years, with 10 years working history in China's largest IT community CSDN.net, and 2 years working history in global renowned technical community InfoQ.com. Accumulate rich connections to the developers, ux designers, architects, project managers, technical leaders both in China and oversea.
Early in 2013, Shining moved to Shenzhen from Beijing, discovering the hardware world is more interesting than that of software, however, hardware scaling is more linear than software, and hardware startups is totally not an easy venture. She started the new adventure by organizing weekly community events with the most active hardware innovators in Shenzhen, sharing the knowledge, practice, and insights of hardware innovation.
The startup venture is named as ShenzhenWare, which means linking software and hardware. "Software is eating the world, and the world is hardware. You need both to make it smarter." Taking the advantages of both software and hardware, the community of ShenzhenWare grow very fast and become the key connector for the new hardware ecosystem, linking hardware innovators with solution providers, platforms, suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, and investors.
ShenzhenWare got access to financing from Green Pine Capital Partners, Geek Founders, and SOS Ventures in 2015.
